SOURCE: The compressor will not kick
The condition you describe usually indicates that either the compressor
is working too hard and
drawing too much current or the start relay is gone bad. The noises that you hear may just be a safety shut-off within the relay. A
good place to start is changing start relay for the factory recommended
one. you will have to access the compressor compartment to see this.
If the standard relay does not correct the problem, there is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your dehumidifier first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system or a faulty compressor. Outside of this may require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a refrigerant leak.
Check your owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator. And there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor if needed.
